Welcome to the UT College of Social Work's innovative Online Master's program. This program was created for students who are unable to come to campus for classes due to their physical location.
The Online MSSW program is taught by the same professors who teach our face-to-face MSSW courses and is held to the same high standards as the traditional on-campus program.
The College's Online MSSW Program was recently awarded the "Innovative Credit Programming Award" by the Tennessee Alliance for Continuing Higher Education (TACHE).
Online MSSW students choose from three different courses of study:
Accredited continuously by the Council on Social Work Education since 1945.
Online classes utilize both asynchronistic (complete work online on your own) and synchronistic (meet for “live” interaction via computer) approaches. Student internships are arranged within a reasonable driving distance from the communities they reside.
The Online MSSW program is held to the same standards as the traditional on-campus MSSW degree. Curriculum and course descriptions, fee information, and application instructions can be accessed via the quick links to the right on this page.
